Police Block Gukurahundi Memorial Event In Bulawayo

Police Block Gukurahundi Memorial Event In Bulawayo

Police in Bulawayo on Wednesday blocked a Gukurahundi commemorative event held by pressure group, Ibhetshu LikaZulu, at Stanley Square.

The annual event is held on 22 December to remember the 20 000 victims of the 1980s Gukurahundi atrocities.

Ibhetshu LikaZulu had planned to march from Stanley Square to the Joshua Nkomo statue in the city centre but police details were deployed to block the event.

This year’s commemorations were held under the theme: “Can there be healing without truth-telling and justice?”

Speaking in an interview with CITE, Ibhetshu LikaZulu Secretary-General Mbuso Fuzwayo said the police conduct was not surprising. He said:

We are not surprised by the conduct of the police. They are part of the security forces that were responsible for the genocide.

It is sad that President Emmerson Mnangagwa always reiterates that people can now discuss openly Gukurahundi but every time when we hold commemorations they come and block us.

However, that is not going to stop the people from holding such events.

On 22 December 1987, the late ZAPU leader Joshua Nkomo signed the Unity Accord with the late ZANU PF leader Robert Mugabe.

The agreement brought to an end the State-sponsored Gukurahundi massacres in the Matabeleland region and parts of Midlands province.

Ndebele attacked helpless Shona people. The government had to step in to stop the shenanigans. They sent the military to deal with it. They did. They did good. The Shona never once fought the Ndebele. It was a battle involving the military and the Dissidents who the destroying shona people and peace in the country. People need to wake up. This is over

WE ARE TIRED WITH THIS GUKURAHUNDI STORY EISH.

THAT'S WHY SOME PEOPLE LIKE SHONAZ VAVA KUTOWONYOKA MANJE

IF WE BEHAVE LIKE SHONAZ, ANOTHER GENOCIDE CAN RESULT AGAIN BECAUSE HAKUSI KUTAURA IKOKO

YOU CAN NOT SEE KUTI THE IBETSHU LAKAZULU ARE PUSHING FOR WHAT, MAY BE THEY ARE SPONSORED SOMEWHERE TO RISE THE DEAD

LET US RESPOND TO THE NDEBELES POLITELY BECAUSE THIS WAS MOSTLY THE WAR BETWEEN THE NDEBELES AND THE SHONAS.

LET US LEARN TO COMMENT ZVAKANAKALY BECAUSE HATICHADA HONDO FUTI IN ZIMBABWE

ANY STOOGES THAT WILL GET SPONSORED TO CAUSE CONFLICTS IN ZIMBABWE WILL BE DEALT WITH

THE POLICE HAS DONE A GOOD THING OF BLOCKING THEM TO OCCUPY THE CBD FOR WHAT IS BEING PLANNED BY THE PRESIDENT TO BE SOLVED

LET US WAIT FOR THE PRESIDENT TO ACT SINCE HE SAID HE IS IN IT
